As I await work to begin on my first ever commissioned pipe, I've decided to go ahead and order my second seeing as the wait is long. As far as North American pipes go, I don't think there's better. I love his take on things. I've recently become enamoured by the squat straight bulldog. As far as finish goes, his mixed smooth/blasts are stunning. Size wise I asked for no smaller than a generous 4. I also want aspects of astronomy, using Metorite material he has available... perhaps on the collar. Still an early work in progress tis fun working this stuff out. Really curious, given my specs, what he comes up with.
